Start of Show:
The music of GM Eric Bischoff hit the waves as he made his way to the ring with a title over his shoulder as the crowd looks on confused at him. He’s smiling as he grabs a mic and begins to speak. He says clearly after Unforgiven last night, there is a great deal of confusion about who the WWE champoion is. He says he is here to clear this up and he has a MAJOR announcement to make but first he wants to introduce us to the ONLY Olympic gold medalist in the WWE; Kurt Angle!
Angle makes his way to the ring to his usual noise from the crowd. Angle poses to the crowd as they boo him and it seems as if he is celebrating victory or something. Bischoff says last night, Cena showed a blatant disregard for the rules, especially placing his hands on Eric Bischoff himself. He says he can do something about it though and by the power vested in him, by the WWE board of directors, he hereby strips John Cena of the WWE TITLE!!! He then introduces to us, his new WWE champion…. Vince McMAhon’s music hits and he makes his way to the arena himself to the delight of the crowd! The Boss is here!
Angle extends his hand to the boss and he shakes it. Eric says he is surprised to see Vince McMahon. Angle butts in and says Mr. McMahon came here to personally thank him for beating John Cena last night. McMahon gives Angle congrats on his big win but says he has a bone to pick with Bischoff. Angle gets involved more and says as new WWE champion he will uphold the 3 I’s and finally be someone others can look up to in this company. Vince asks who made him WWE champion, and Angle poinjts to Bischoff. Vince says he has no authority to do that! Vince corrects it all after mocking the helkl out of Bischoff, who whined about Cena. McMAhon then talks about two weeks from tonight, Monday, October 3rd, a WWE homecoming. Coming back home will be the hardcore legend Mick Foley, HHH, Hulk Hogan, and Stone Cold Steve Austin! He then looks at Bischoff and says there will also be something else happening and he does have the authority to do this. Angle asks if it involves him. Bischoff says two weeks from tonight, John Cena goes one on one in a WWE title match against you…. (Angle smiles but then..) Vince says “ERIIIIIIIIIC BISCHOOOOOOOOF”! Easy E can’t believe his eyes as the boss walks out of the ring strutting his stuff.
Trish is shown stretching in the back getting ready for her match against Torrie.
Eric Bischoff talks about not wanting to face John Cena. He begs Vince McMahon to do the right thing and says he’ll be so busy planning the show he’d be better off backstage! McMahon says he will think about it. He gets in his limo and Bischoff is starting to have hope but then he says the match is still on and leaves the arena!
Referee: Chris Kay
